|Still from The Help|
For the second week in a row, Disney's The Help finds itself on-top at the Box Office. Now in its third week, the Drama earned $14.3 million in a weak weekend. To date the Tearjerker has earned $95.7 million domestically, exceeding all expectations and being well on its way to a serious run for Oscars Gold.
In second this weekend is Columbiana, which debuts with $11 million for Sony Pictures. The Thriller starring Avatar's Zoe Saldana keeps another debuting Film Don't be Afraid of the Dark in third spot with $8.7 million.
In fourth spot is 20th Century Fox's former champion Rise of the Planet of the Apes with $8.5 million this weekend, while The Weinstein Co.'s Our Idiot Brother opens in fifth spot with $6.6 million, opening well below expectations for the Comedy with an all-star Cast including Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Rashida Jones.
Crazy, Stupid, Love. slips to eighth spot this weekend with $3.2 million for Warner Bros. in its fifth week and Conan the Barbarian rounds out the Top Ten in its second week with a disappointing $3.2 million.
